What can we do for you?

MTI Vekst is an investment company with a focus on companies that have customers and a proven business model , but need capital and assistance for faster growth.

We are not a managed fund. All our experienced investors have an active role in the selection and follow-up of each company. Our combined expertise and experience includes many different industries and segments.

See our investment criteria below. These are, of course, not without exception, but give an indication of how we think and what we focus on. Feel free to contact us if you are a potential co-investor with the same mindset/criteria as us.

We have offices in the centre of Oslo, and in the Research Park of the University of Southeast Norway (USN) in Vestfold. Naturally, we often meet businesses headquartered in central Eastern Norway, but anyone who meets our criteria is encouraged to get in touch.

We also have no fixed investment horizon. But we must have a common ambition and goal of exit. We are no bank ...

We work closely with other investment companies, business, academia and other actors who can assist with commercialization and capitalization of businesses.

Our partners can also offer consulting as a payable service, including management for hire. We can therefore help many entrepreneurs and businesses in our portfolio from the idea phase through start-up and growth to exit.

Investment criteria

  • We are looking for dedicated people with considerable experience and ambition to bring the company to the next phase.
  • Clear management, but amenable to input and guidance.
  • Commercial, not too product-oriented.
  • We are primarily looking for companies that already have a product or service on the market.
  • Which has customers and cash flow, and a proven business model.
  • But need some capital for further growth. Typically in the range of 5 - 10 MNOK in this round, where we can be one of several investors.
Market and industry
  • We don't have any particular segment or industry requirements. But we are excited about technology with the potential for disruption.
  • The company must have a business idea with significant growth potential.
  • Preferably towards international markets, but not a prerequisite. We are also very excited about companies that can gain a significant market share in Norway and are potential acquisition candidates in the long term.
  • B2B and B2B2B. B2C and B2G only in very specific cases where we see that the company already has a significant position.
Product or service
  • The company will demonstrate technological solutions with identified advantages in its markets
  • We need to understand the product and be able to communicate what it is
  • We look for products and services with a clear value proposition to customers and the environment
  • All software regardless of industry is interesting. Of course SAAS, but also combined with consultancy.
  • We are also looking at electronics development and production; e.g. sensors, circuit boards, network components etc. 
  • Certainly solutions within the IoT (Internet of things) and IIot (Industrial Internet of things), artificial intelligence and smart systems.
  • All micro and nanotechnology that can utilize resources at USN; water purification, energy, materials technology, etc.
  • But in general, we are opportunistic as long as it meets our criteria.
  • The business model must be clear and scalable
  • Preferably subscription (recurring) models
  • We also look for the company's ability to build barriers to both existing and future competition. Preferably a patent, but not a prerequisite. IP can be built in several ways
  • Milestone investment is desirable. Normally 2 - 3 MNOK in initial investment, but we can also look at higher initial investment
  • Clear path for further growth and capitalization
  • Our ability to participate in the development of the company is more important than company pricing 
  • Co-investor is most often desired
  • Possible board participation and role is assessed on a case-by-case basis, but normally not a prerequisite
